The manga’s story is about a humble salary man named Kentarō Komori who started what he thinks is the ideal lifestyle during the pandemic, the “NEETING LIFE” (NEET stands for Not Engaged in Education, Employment or Training). He put up a tent inside his apartment, took everything he needed in it, and started living like a shut-in.
Tsutsui launched the manga on the YanJan! app and on the Tonari no Young Jump website in December 2021. Shueisha published the manga’s first compiled book volume in August 2022, and will publish the second volume on March 17.
